Theo on Terry: Decency, Emotional Intelligence Over-Rated

Sep 30, 2011

BOSTON - The blogosphere is buzzing with rumors about the existence of a secretly recorded MP3 audio in which Boston Red Sox GM Theo Epstein - addressing the team's decision not to re-sign two-time World Series winning manager Terry Francona - reportedly says that "emotional intelligence and decency" are "way over-rated."

There are reports that the recording also has Epstein saying that the Red Sox's next manager would be a "heartless prick with an MBA, ideally from an Ivy League school." 
 
 

Sources close to the embattled GM dismissed rumors that Epstein was jealous of Francona because the latter enjoyed life. "Theo doesn't have emotions," said the source.
